And by far, the statistical records speak for itself that in an IPL match, the performance of 8 overseas players (four from each team) on an average constitutes to around 60 percent impact in deciding the fate of the game.
Here goes the The Foreigners; all time Overseas XI of the IPL :
1. Chris Gayle:
As expected, when it comes to T20, you can bet for anything to have the Jamaican giant in your team. A player with 3199 runs in just 82 matches with 5 centuries and 18 scores over 50 with a whooping average of 46.36 is something insane as per the T20 standards. His prime strength lies in clearing the boundary with sheer ease. And a player, who has done that for as many as 230 times, speaks for himself. He is undoubtedly one of the best opening batsmen in the history of IPL. To add a feather in the cap, this man has also got 16 wickets in the league.
